David Luiz’s recent bust-up with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has pushed him down to pecking order and it seems as if he is not coming up anytime soon. The Brazilian is currently recovering from an injury but he hasn’t featured in the back three games and the situation is not getting any better.

Yesterday there were reports that Real Madrid are planning a January transfer window bid for Luiz and now by the looks of it, Chelsea already seem to be preparing for life without the central defender.

Looks like Conte does not have a problem with Luiz leaving Stamford Bridge and according to the Sun the Italian will be trying to persuade the Chelsea owner to allocate a budget of £60 million for Juventus left-back Alex Sandro.

Conte has been chasing the Brazilian left back for ages now but Juventus are just not ready to let him leave Italy. But if Luiz moves out of the club then that will free up some space in the back line and then Conte can take one more shot at trying to bring Sandro to Stamford Bridge.
